Jan Blachowicz’s championship run was short-lived.
But he’ll have a chance to get back into the winning column when he meets Aleksandar Rakic in the main event of this Saturday’s UFC Fight Night.
Blachowicz is coming off a submission loss to Glover Teixeira, who snatched the light heavyweight title from him in October.
Rakic, meanwhile, is on a two-fight winning streak, nabbing victories over Thiago Santos and Anthony Smith.
Rakic is No. 5 in ESPN’s light heavyweight rankings while Blachowicz is ranked No. 2.
